"I would highly recommend this teacher training for those wanting to learn from a traditional school...

I cannot express enough how grateful I am for choosing Himalaya Yoga Valley to equip me with the tools I needed to feel confident as a teacher. The course had the perfect balance between all elements of traditional yoga.

The teachers were experienced, supportive, and knowledgeable across the board. I felt extremely safe throughout my time at the yoga centre, which was something I felt a little apprehensive about before embarking on my journey.

I would highly recommend this teacher training for those wanting to learn from a traditional school that's close to the source of the yoga.

Skill Level

Our Yoga Teacher Training programme is perfect for
yoga practitioners who...
Want to become a certified Yoga Teacher
Our training is designed to gradually build your confidence in actually teaching a yoga class. So when you leave you'll have all of the skills and knowledge you need to start your new life as a Yoga Teacher.
Want to elevate their personal knowledge and practice
Lots of people have taken our trainings with no plans to become a Yoga Teacher and just want to build their knowledge of yoga and improve their personal practice. Our four week course is the perfect foundation for anyone who simply wants to learn traditional yoga and integrate this incredible practice into their life.

Are you a complete beginner?

Our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training standard is the highest in the world and our 4 week programme is an intensive and challenging process. We recommend only applying for a Yoga Teacher Training if you have at least 6 months of experience practicing yoga regularly (at least 2-3 classes per week).

Our Residential Yoga Retreat may be better for you

If you are a complete beginner or aren’t sure that you’re quite ready for a full Yoga Teacher Training you can join us any time for a Residential Yoga Retreat, where you can stay at our centre and practice twice-daily yoga with Lalit and the team without the training and discipline required during the YTT programme.

If it sounds like a Residential Yoga Retreat would be better for you head over to our bookings page for more information.

Style of yoga

During the Yoga Teacher Training programme you will learn a unique blend of traditional yoga styles:

Ashtanga Vinyasa

Our Level I Yoga Teacher Training Practice Sequence is founded in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that builds strength, flexibility and focus.

Iyengar Yoga

To compliment the Ashtanga style we also teach the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga, particularly focusing on precise alignment in poses, and the use of props and modifications to make the practice safe and accessible for all levels.

Himalayan Tradition of Yoga Meditation

Our school director Yogacharya Lalit is a student of a long tradition of yoga from a direct line of Himalayan Masters. Lalit studied under his master Swami Veda Bhati and Grandmaster Swami Rama, who founded the famous Himalayan Institute, and on our Yoga Teacher Training you will learn meditation and philosophy in alignment with this ancient lineage.


Our Yoga Teacher Trainings are held at our Yoga Centre in Mandrem, North Goa. It’s a very peaceful part of Goa that is well known for its friendly and safe atmosphere. Locals have been welcoming yogis here for over 15 years and love the great energy our students always bring.

During your training, you’ll be very comfortable in our beautiful villas and will get to exclusively enjoy our pool and garden area as well as our on-site vegetarian restaurant.
